Young Kiwi Artists Go To Italy

Young Kiwi Artists Go To Italy

The generous support of Stars Travel and Singapore Airlines has allowed Auckland Museum to award two lucky Auckland school pupils and their families a trip to Trieste, Italy as part of the ‘I Dream of Italy’ art competition. Until Saturday organisers thought just one winner would travel but the support of Stars Travel and Singapore Airlines means that the top two entrants will both be present at the exhibition opening.

Carpe Diem Worldwide (Italian not for profit organisation).

The 2 winners were Emily Cole (12) of Ficino School in Mt Eden, and Quinn Menton (7) from Lone Kauri School in Karekare.

Three other place-getters were named: 3rd Courtney Harland and 4th Chloe Litchfield both from Northcross Intermediate and 5th Vivian Jacobs from Kingsway School.

Held in association with Carpe Diem Worldwide (Italian not for profit organisation), the Newmarket Business Association and the Parnell Trust as part of the existing ‘Heart of Art’ Festival, the competition has been opened up this year to children from Auckland, Australia, Miami and Italy.

The judges chose the 20 local finalists out of 200 entries and a then selected the winners last week. All 20 will showcase in the Carpe Diem Young Art Catalogue and will be on display in Trieste for two months from early February 2005. They will then be shown in businesses around Newmarket and Parnell next May as part of the Heart of Art Festival.

One remarkable thing that emerged as the finalists became known was that Lone Kauri School with less than 20 pupils managed to achieve two finalists. Other schools with multiple finalists were Kristin School, Kingsway School, Northcross Intermediate and Ponsonby Intermediate.

The theme for the 2005 competition will be ‘World Peace’ and will be open to children from approximately 12 countries. This will become a touring exhibition, opening in the Guggenheim Museum in New York in November, and including a leg at Auckland Museum.
